Apparently it’s Bizarro Day at SYLG. Yeah, you might want to just roll with it.
Residents in Moab, Utah are trying for a third time to get a popular canyon just outside the city renamed because they believe the current name is embarrassing and disrespectful. Local resident Louis Williams says he cringes every time he has to tell visitors that the name of the canyon is Negro Bill Canyon.
But president of the NAACP’s Salt Lake City chapter, Jeanetta Williams, has said her organization will oppose the name change just as it has when the proposal has been put forward before.
“If the name changes, it’s going to lose its history,’ she said. ‘Negro is an acceptable word.”
I love that that NAACP can decide what are “acceptable” words. One N-word is good, but another is bad? It’s getting to be you can’t tell the players without a race card.
